Adam Sandler Is Astronaut in the ‘Spaceman’ Trailer


Adam Sandler’s journey with Netflix didn’t exactly blast off to a stellar start, with films like The Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over lingering in the memory, perhaps for all the wrong reasons.

Yet, as time unfurled its cinematic tapestry, I’ve discovered a curious anticipation for Sandler’s Netflix ventures. They’re a mixed bag, true, but they’ve also proven to be a departure from the predictable Sandler formula—a refreshing detour from the eccentric character in a slapstick comedy routine. Sandler’s repertoire now spans sports dramas, murder mysteries, animated escapades, and, brace yourself, a sci-fi venture.

Enter “Spaceman,” an intriguing addition to the Sandler-Netflix collaboration. This isn’t your typical Sandler affair; instead, it promises a deep dive into the cosmos, featuring him as a solitary astronaut grappling with the vastness of space and unexpected encounters, including the enigmatic Paul Dano. The first teaser for the film unfolds a tantalizing glimpse into a world where Sandler’s comedic prowess meets the cosmic unknown.

Curious to witness this cosmic rendezvous? Dive into the trailer and explore the unexpected realms of “Spaceman”:

Here is the film’s official synopsis:

Six months into a solitary research mission to the edge of the solar system, an astronaut, Jakub (Adam Sandler), realizes that the marriage he left behind might not be waiting for him when he returns to Earth. Desperate to fix things with his wife, Lenka (Carey Mulligan), he is helped by a mysterious creature from the beginning of time he finds hiding in the bowels of his ship. Hanuš (voiced by Paul Dano) works with Jakub to make sense of what went wrong before it is too late.

Spaceman premieres on Netflix on March 1, 2024.
